Martin Drake Interior Remodel
Completed: January 2007
This was a unique project because it consisted of virtually building a new building on the inside of an existing building. The project included 11,000 square feet of new floor area. A new structural third floor was built in the warehouse/machine shop of the power plant, which was finished to create a large conference room. This room included audio/visual, data and internet capabilities. The existing second floor became the facility department’s offices.
Wells & West General Contractors, Inc. was involved in the pre-construction planning, chaired weekly construction meetings, created and adhered to a comprehensive schedule, coordinated all phases and maintained safety and quality control.
One challenge was the installation of a structural floor. Our crews worked over existing work areas in a confined space. Our project team worked with our subcontractors to safely install steel beams and decking. Also included were new restrooms, elevator, stairs, and complete finishes.
